the many faces of **KASEY**

Today is my nephew Kaseys 15th birthday. I cannot believe he is that old already.It seems like just yesterday he was only 2. They grow up so darn fast. Anyways here is a couple of pictures of the birthday boy and why I LOVE him so much!!:)

-- he would do anything for you

-- he LOVES baseball

-- he never asks for anything except a hug :)

-- hes taller than me

-- he loves animals

-- his dad is my brother

-- he worries about anything and everything,but its a good thing

-- he plays the guitar as good as his grandpa

We were playing a game around Christmas time and man was he ever so deep in thought. I think he won quite a few games that night. Hes so smart!

I love this pic. Another great picture taken on a previous birthday.

This picture was taken in Strawberry. The boys were acting like Indians and running all over the place,it was hilarious! Kasey is the one on the left.

Hope your Birthday was a great one Kasey. I love you!!!

Now these are no ordinary cookies. These are Uncle Biffs Killer Cookies! There is actually a store in California where they make and sell these awesome cookies. I know that your asking yourself.."why these cookies?" There is a story behind them, so I will fill you in.
About 3 years ago I went on a vacation with my family to San Diego California. Longest drive of my entire life let me tell you. We were on our way to find our hotel room and we ended up on some side street. My brother had to flip around because unfortunately that was not the street that we needed. As he flipped around, low and behold there it was...Uncle Biffs Killer Cookie shop. I guess you just had to be there, because we were laughing about this the whole enire time,because of the name. Even my mom was laughing..haha!
Anyways, my niece and nephews just got back from San Diego on Friday from spring break. I told Brittany to bring me back something cool. I met them at my moms on Friday when they got back and Kasey handed me this box. I was thinking it was some little Knick Knack or something. I looked at the sticker on the top of the box and it said, "Uncle Biffs Killer Cookies!" haha They actually found this place after 3 years. I was dumbfounded. I guess their hotel was somewhere around the same place and they found it. So that was cool. The cookies are good, but Bethies are so much better! :) Thanks guys for the cookies, your awesome!
Sorry to bore you with my ramblings, I thought it was funny that they found this place again.

I just have to post this because I'm so excited! :) I went to weight watchers last night to weigh in and I was feeling a little down because I didn't think that I would lose anything. Well, there was no reason for me to feel down because I got on the scale and I lost 2.8 pounds! Taking my total weight loss up to 14.2 pounds. Oh my gosh!! I don't know how I did that but It sure feels good. :)

Keeping in touch with good friends :)

I'm a little behind on posting this, but I guess its better late then never, right?
Friday night Bethie and I got together with 2 of our friends that we used to work with. It was awesome to see them. Autumn just had a baby and you wouldn't have known, she looked great! And Shelly...this girl is amazing! She's lost 31 pounds since January on weight watchers. Way to go Shell, you look awesome! :) It was great to relax and catch up on everything.

From bottom left..Bethie,myself,Autumn and Shelly.

We finally made it on Saturday to.........

Yeah,this store is pretty much AMAZING! We walked in there thinking we would be out of there in like a half hour to an hour...NOT!!! We were in there for 2 loooong hours..hehe. Anything you can think of this store has and in any shape or form that you would like it in. WOW! I found my "dream" kitchen in there, but I was stupid and didn't take a picture of it. So when we go back...hehe I will definetely take one. I just bought a stovetop grill and some measuring spoons, nothing too dramatic. If you haven't been there, you should check it out! I plan on going back soon I hope.
Tomorrow is weigh in again. I didn't post anything 2 weeks ago because I didn't really have anything to post and besides I gained a pound. But last week I lost .2 and I'm hoping for more this week. We shall see. Keep your fingers crossed for me. :)
